Mmmmm YUM! Avocados are the best kind of butter-substitute on toast, in my opinion. They have this amazing full flavour and smooth mouth-feel. You don’t need to add much to create perfection!

Good to know
- Storing: If you want to prepare the toast in advance, or take it with you, store the mashed avocado and the bread in separate airtight containers. Make sure you store the avocado in the refrigerator (or cooler bag if you want to take it with you).
- Shelf life: The toast will stay good for several days if stored correctly but should ideally be eaten right after you prepare it.
- Gluten-Free: To make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free bread.
- Toast: If you do not have a toaster, you can toast it using a frying pan. Put the pan on the stove over medium heat. Put the toast in the frying pan, let it sit there for about a minute, then flip it and toast the other side for another minute. How long exactly you need to toast each side, depends on your personal preference and how thick the slices of bread are.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
